Horror Morrow, W. C.: A Night with Death and other Tales of the Macabre. v1. 21 Feb 2021

An extensive collection of stories from a dark imagination… A few are touched with the supernatural, some cross into weird fiction, but even the non-genre tales are imbued with grisly ghastliness to make your flesh creep. =========== William Chambers Morrow (7 July 1854 – 3 April 1923) was an American writer, now noted mainly for his short stories of horror and suspense. He is probably best known for the much-anthologized story “His Unconquerable Enemy” (1889), about the implacable revenge of ...

Kobo ebook not showing up in Mac Finder

Hello, everyone. I connected my Kobo Libra H2o to my Mac (Catalina) via USB cable, planning to drag a new ebook (purchased from Kobo) from the Finder into Calibre. The newly purchased book does NOT show up in the Finder. If I click the Device icon in Calibre (5.11) to view my Kobo books I do see the book listed. I have done this with other books without any trouble. Am I missing a step? Could this book be stored on the Kobo somewhere OTHER THAN the main memory? Any help appreciated. Thx. kathy

The Modded Kernels Thread

Hi all, So in the last few days I made a big leap forward in my Kobo hacking and connected mines to my Rasberry Pi's serial port. Now I could mod the device as I wanted, installing a new OS if I wanted, and have full control over it. So far I've successfully installed some Linux distros in there, such as Alpine Linux 3.13, Debian 6/7/8. However, to make them run, I had to recompile the kernel because some crucial features weren't there (e.g. cgroups for Debian 8 w/ systemd). I spent some time ...

Calibre doesn't detect books on device

Hi everybody, I'm new to this forum, so apologies if this is the wrong place to ask these types of questions. I've been using my e-reader on and off for a while, using Calibre to sync my libraries on the device itself and on my PC. Not every e-book I own is stored on my e-reader due to storage space. Just today, I ran into an issue. I sent a bunch of books to my device, which worked fine since I could see the new books on my device. However, when restarting Calibre and/or when plugging my e-re...

format exemption during input auto conversion

Hello again, as the title says, I have a lot of info I add to calibre while simply dragging into the monitored input folder. While I am really happy that it is all converted to epub as is, I was wondering if there is a way to have PDF files exempted from this conversion process and be added in their original format and left alone as most of these are instruction guides and plans that have large hi-def images that are best left as pdf and viewed as such since they can be edited from time to time....

my english is not the best, but I´m shure you will understand. If you open a book with the calibre integrated ebook-viewer, I miss any information about the actual page number you are reading. In older versions of calibre, there has been at least an information with % of readed pages. For a short time there are information about the chapters and you can start reading any opional chapter, but there is no more information about the number of pages.

A Portrait of Ruttie Jinnah That Doesn’t Hold Up

There is much that is debatable and untenable in the new book on Jinnah’s wife. Who goes into history? Who is worthy of a biography? The shakers who change civilisation and our view of the world – the scientists, writers, painters and philosophers. And perhaps more than them, the movers, the captains and the kings and, if we believe Winston Churchill’s contention that behind every man who achieves anything there stands a woman, their consorts and their queens!

Eliot Higgins: 'People accuse me of working for the CIA'

The founder of the online investigative collective Bellingcat talks about working with Alexei Navalny, open source reporting and the trouble with ‘cyber-miserablism’Eliot Higgins launched Bellingcat in summer 2014, days after the Russian military shot down Malaysian Airlines MH17 over eastern Ukraine. The online outfit has broken a series of international scoops. In 2018 it discovered the identities of the two undercover assassins who poisoned Sergei Skripal in Salisbury. Last year Bellingcat re...

Calibre 3.48 fails to load

Running Calibre 3.48 on a MacBook Pro running High Sierra 10.13.6 - when I try and start it, it loads the books and bottles out at the initialising user interface stage. I'm having to keep loading it until it 'sticks'. I've tried a reinstall, running direct from the Applications folder instead of the pinned toolbar icon... Any ideas? It takes several tries before it loads.

Are mushrooms growing under your bed? This book suggests you might want them to

It seems that people are increasingly turning to plants and gardening for consolation, exercise, and exploration during these pandemic times. Worlds of discovery await them. A serious gardener wears many hats: botanist, entomologist, weed scientist, plant pathologist, soil scientist, irrigation specialist. I also believe there is a back-to-the-land desire in all of us, although it may have been diminished by our ever more fervent worship of convenience in the high-tech era. Although its title is...

Other Fiction Blüthgen, Victor: Ein Friedensstörer. V1 [German] 20.2.2021

"Ein Friedensstörer" von Victor Blüthgen erschien 1881 in der Zeitschrift "Die Gartenlaube", in deren Redaktion der Autor auch eine Weile mitgearbeitet hatte. Adolph Kohut, der 1898 für die Zeitschrift "Nord und Süd" einen Artikel über diesen Schriftsteller verfasst hatte (ich habe ihn anstelle eines Nachworts OCRt dem eBook eingefügt), urteilte, es sei »vielleicht der amüsanteste und originellste Roman, den er geschrieben, eine vorpommersche Familiengeschichte, mit einer Figur, wie sie nur Reut...
